"I would like to thank John Harding and Elton Reed for the
fine job they both did on the latest Kaizan Event at Tempco. Thanks
to all the team members on the project. I am personally impressed
with the results and again hats off to both of you."
Playworld Systems, Inc.
“Thanks to TCA, things are going very well for us this year.
YTD profits are up 37% over the previous year, inventories down
20%, lead time remains at 15 days (vs. 7-8 weeks last year) and
delivery to promises exceeds 99% vs. 87% last year. All great news!”
Bob Jewett, Vice President
“In 1998 we realized that conventional job shop methods for
manufacturing precision sheet metal products were not meeting our
customers’ needs for rapid turnaround and smaller lots. We
formalized Lean Manufacturing (the Toyota production System) and
focused everyone here toward those practices. The results have been
We increased productivity by over 40%, quality by over 65%
and on-time delivery by more than 26%. We reduced average minimum
lot size by more than 55% and average process time by 70%. Our mean
throughput time used to be 53 days… it is now between 10 and
16 days for the normal order. The average economic production lot
size was 200-250 pieces, now it’s well under 100 pieces. During
the same period we also reduced the price for nearly every part
we were making.
We have put all these pieces together to provide you with
World Class sheet metal fabrication so you can better control your
schedules, and lower all your costs without sacrificing value. We’re
more nimble now, and more user friendly than ever before.
One of the principal reasons we're still playing in the
Job Shop sandbox is TCA!”
W. Elias, Quality Manager
Electro Energy Inc.
"We survived our AS9100 registration audit last Monday and
Tuesday thanks to your mentoring and support. The NSF-ISR auditors
seemed to be pleased with our management system and recommended
its registration upon successful closure of a 10-point minor nonconformance.
We worked the problem yesterday and submitted our disposition for
evaluation — we are hopeful to have satisfactorily closed the issue
to proceed with our registration.
We are pleased to have one management system that includes
R&D because we are all singing from the same sheet of music. What
a pleasant change from the management standards we've suffered
with for so many years."
